Great classic New England Lobster Shack. They consistently win Connecticut Magazine's Best Lobster Roll award, and for good reason. Worth the trip from anywhere.

I've had them all and this was the biggest and among the best. Looks a little run down but that's intentional. The people are nice and the location is great.

This is a great local place for a casual lunch. These lobster rolls are famous around the CT shoreline and are a great quick bite during the summer, beware they are more expensive than expected!

Not fancy. Just a tent by the water with excellent lobster rolls. Plastic tables and chairs. Order as you walk in and pay as you walk out.

This is a legitimate lobster roll. Nothing but lobster, butter and toasted roll. But with that being said maybe I don't like a real lobster roll. It was too rich for me with all the butter. But if you like the real deal give it a try.

Definitely the best lobster rolls we have ever had. Third visit now and quality always consistent The hot dogs also very good. After a morning on the beach, it is nice to sit in a casual place and have good tasting simple food

Along the New England coast there are many lobster shanties. Like the others, Lobster Landing serves very good lobster rolls from a building that looks like it will fall down. But that's part of the charm. Very limited menu but good service and eating outdoors with a view of the harbor. Price has gone up but still a treat.

Thank John L
